On a special edition of 'this week in innovation' at 12:30PM Pacific/3:30PM Eastern join co-hosts Gregg Masters, and Dr. Pat Salber for a roundtable chat with the founders and principal organizers in the 'modelH' initiative.

According to their website, modelH is:

'...is a dynamic collaboration between Kevin Riley & Associates, Innovation Excellence, and Batterii that has come together for a year-long project focused on co-creating healthcare business models. Our goal is to co-create an open-source business model canvas with the healthcare community in a collaborative forum.'

Collaboration inside an 'open source busines model canvas' context? Sounds good to us! Lets explore the intent of this nascent interest. Rather than rehash the consistently cited ills of our 'house of cards' sickcare system at risk of implosion, lets note the intention of the calling:

'...members of the modelH community will join other passionate healthcare and innovation professionals to create meaningful change in the US healthcare industry. Members will cultivate new professional relationships, elevate their personal brands and identities, and receive direct attribution in Kevin Riley's forthcoming book as permanent proof of the important co-creative role they played.'

During this roundtable, we'll hear more about the following:

  • What is modelH?
  • Why organize the effort?
  • Why is this different from other innovation work incuding that of Ostwrwalder?
  • What did it take to pull modelH together?

Join us for a tour of the vision.
